Remember when the Republican presidential front-runner tried to make America great again by suggesting an Apple boycott, a boycott of the most valuable American company in the world? It seems that he doesn’t either.
Once upon a time, almost three weeks ago, Mr. Trump decided that as Apple has refused to comply with the federal order to unlock a suspected terrorist’s iPhone 5c, all iPhone users must exact revenge on the company by boycotting apple Products. At that time, he also added on Twitter that ”If Apple doesn’t give info to authorities on the terrorists I’ll only be using Samsung until they give info.” (Mr. Trump tweeted via his iPhone less than an hour before he called for the ban on Apple products.)
It seems however that in the end Apple won this battle when on March 11 Donald Trump unleashed a number of tweets on the twitter sphere; which were all sent via his iPhone. Before this happened a number of spelling mistakes were spotted and it was thought that perhaps the Wharton Business School graduate may be struggling with the Samsung mobile and because of the easy to use keyboard of Apple’s iPhone he might have thought it better to start re-using it.
Trump was one of the first candidates to chastise Apple for the now-infamous legal battle with FBI over the unlocking of the iPhone of the dead terrorist, Syed Rizwan Farook. Other candidates for the presidential election since then also took the position of the FBI as well.
This was not the first time that Mr. Trump has made Apple the object of his derision as last year he stated that he will force the Cupertino-based tech giant to “build their damn computers” in America.
So even if you’re trying to make the American nation great again, it doesn’t mean that you are immune to faults. You just have to be wise enough to not show said faults to the public.
